NOTE: Information received from Jeff Athern 14 January 2009: "I stumbled across a slight error, most likely a mis-citation by other authors years ago. I was searching for references on Xanthium and came across this reference. As far as I know, there has never been a record of Xanthium texanum. However, there is (or was) a plant that went by Xanthisma texanum. I had come across a few references that referred to Xanthium texanum, however when reviewing the citations they were actually referring to the Xanthisma."
